Storage. Curtains are not only used on windows, but also as replacements to cupboard doors. This can be done yourself, by simply removing the original doors are replacing them with the fabric of your choice, perhaps something that matches already existing soft furnishings, like cushions or duvet covers. This idea therefore works extremely well in the bedroom, when curtains are used as wardrobe doors, or if you're feeling really brave, then can also be used in the kitchen.
The valance is a curtain that is used often to cover up rods or other hardware. There are various types of valances such as the waterfall valance, the ascot valance, or an Austrian valance. The type depends on the wanted appearance of the valance to be boxy or to drape across other hanging curtains. They are hung with an additional small rod to cover existing hanging curtains or hung with a bracket that is often attached to a more boxy style valance that surrounds an existing rod with drapes. Valances can also be hung alone above a window for decorative purposes.
In a bedroom you would usually use room darkening shades, as well as rod curtains, which are simple and inexpensive to make. One of the convenient things about rod curtains is that when you get tired of your colour scheme and want to make a change, it is easy to make new curtains to match your new bedding and painted walls.
